Shame, but it looks like the Westco is good.Hi no these are not Yuasa batteriers, they would be a lot more money to buy thanks Alan
Using the 2 amp wont be a problem. Charging at lower amps, for a longer period is best for a complete charge, but the .8 amp difference isn't anything to worry about.eBrian said:Now that I got the sucker.... the directions say to charge it at 1.2 amps an hour for 5 to 10 hours.... I've only got a 2/10 amp charger or my 500ma trickle charger. Which one should I charge it with?
It may be showing good voltage but what about a load test?vn750angky said:Here is something you might not want to know--
I put a new Westco battery in my bike after I replaced my stator (at 12,000 miles!!!). I ran it three months and about 5,000 miles. Away on a trip and my bike quit on me. Charging system is fine, but the battery crashed. It's still showing good voltage, but it doesn't run the bike. It cannot even close a relay contact--(clicks shut and open).
Anybody have that experience?
Any ideas why?

MF gel battery?BSkaggs513 said:I have replaced the battery with a MF gel battery and I agree that the bike ran unbelievably better. If you really want to make it purr, replace the plugs with iridiums. For me, the combination of the two made it start every time, hot or cold. Remember, though, use anti seeze if you change the plugs!
